Teenage Waistland

Teenage Waistland - Lynn Biederman, Lisa Pazer I tried to read this book as I'm wont to read all young adult titles that feature fat kids either overcoming their weight (by losing weight) or fat kids accepting themselves as is. There have a been a slew of these over the past few years, and I've been chomping through them all. Most of them, I can't stand. I understand that I'm not the target audience but I don't like the over use of snark, slang, brand names or text language in my books. It takes me completely out of the story. Also, unlikable characters should have at least something that makes you want to cheer for them. Maybe I'm getting to old to read YA fiction, but this is definitely a book I CAN'T recommend.
